我们是耶稣基督的见证人 We are witness of Jesus Christ

Acts 5:27-32

27既然带来了,就叫他们站在公议会前。大祭司问他们:28我们严厉地吩咐过你们,不准再奉这名施教。看,你们却把你们的道理传遍了耶路撒冷,想要把流这人的血的责任推到我们身上。29彼得和众使徒回答:服从上帝过于服从人,是应当的。30你们挂在木头上亲手杀害的耶稣,我们祖先的上帝已经使他复活了。31上帝把他高举在自己的右边,作元首作救主,把悔改的心赐给了以色列人,使他们罪得赦免。32我们为这些事作证,上帝赐给顺从的人的圣灵也为这些事作证。

27 The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. 28 “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! 30 The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross. 31 God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. 32 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”

 

 

重点学习

人性是软弱的,除非上帝用特别的恩赐来装备那些被神赋予重任的人。

上帝与那些遵循正确和纯洁教导的人立下了圣约,而这些人凭着真正的信心欣然接受了上帝所应许的救恩。

基督被安置在荣耀的至高处,使祂可以支配神的子民,也可以执行祂身为救赎元首和救恩根源的角色。

基督将新生命当成礼物赐予我们,好让祂能更新我们内在的人,使新生命从我们被更新的心灵涌流出来。基督赐予悔改的心,而这不是我们人类能给予的。

悔改是一种自愿的转变,但它的源头是上帝改变了我们的心,把石心换成了肉心,把刚硬的心换成了柔韧的心,把曾经屈曲的给弄直了。基督藉由祂的圣灵让我们重生的时候,就会发生这种情况。然而,这恩典并不局限于一个特定的时刻,而是每天在我们生命里增加,直到我们完全亲近上帝,也就是直到我们脱去肉身的时候。

 

 

Lessons Learn

Human nature is weak unless God equips with special gifts those on whom he lays a notable task.

God had made his covenant, who had followed the right and pure teaching, who had embraced the promise of salvation with true faith.

Christ has been placed on the highest level of honor so that he can govern God’s people, and also so he can perform the role of a saving leader or author of salvation.

Christ bestows the gift of new birth to us so that he may renew us on the inside and so that new life may flow from the renewed mind and heart. Christ gives repentance, which is not in man’s power to give.

Repentance is a voluntary conversion, but the source of this is God’s changing our hearts, making a heart of flesh out of a heart of stone, making a pliable heart out of a hard heart, and making straight what was once crooked. This happens when Christ gives us new birth through his Spirit. This gift is not restricted to one particular moment but daily increases throughout our lives, until we draw near to God completely. This will only happen when we have put off our flesh.
